Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: DAT to PC question???

Personally never transfered from tape to PC, but I do have the Audiology 2zs card which has the capability to do so. The card has filters to remove pops and hiss from the input signal. You would be creating WAV files which you can edit to some degree in with the Wave studio application. I have not fully explored the capability of Wave studio, have only use fad in/out when eliminating long sections of Dead air and put in track markers. Not sure why soundcard would need to be external. Download directly to soundcard in PC, save to where ever you want. Once you have created the Wav files you'll need a different application to compress for permanent storage.

It's my understanding the generic soundcards, especially in laptops, are not good enough to do a decent job with the archiving.

And it needs to be external 'cause I have a laptop... (I think)...

thanks for your post
